where they are using aircraft now to try to prevent a meltdown. >> reporter: military helicopters launched an all-out water assault on japan's crippled nuclear power plant in a desperate attempt to buy more time. crews are racing to finish a new power line that could restore crucial water pumps. the best option many experts say to cool dangerously hot reactors and prevent a nuclear meltdown. >> my confident is eroded somewhat because of the continual almost daily degradation in the infrastructure that they have there. >> reporter: the facility has been plagued by a series of explosions and fires since last week's earthquake and tsunami knocked out power. newly released images show the extent of damage to reactor 4. japan is denying u.s. claims that same reactor has no more water in its spent fuel pools meaning there is nothing to keep the fuel rods from melting down. >> we believe that radiation levels are extremely high, which could possibly impact the ability to take corrective measures. >> reporter: the u.s. is urging all americans to steer clear of the troubled plant. late las
